The Senior Capstone Project in Education Studies, completed in
the Senior Research Seminar, is the culmination of the undergraduate
experience, allowing students to explore their interests in greater depth and
to make an original contribution to the field. While a significant written work is at the core of all senior
projects, some students have supplemented their written work with multimedia and engaged scholarship. Supplemental work has included production of a video or website, fieldwork with community-based youth
organizations, and conducting oral interviews.
Students who complete the concentration in Education Studies are positioned to pursue certification programs to teach
in public schools or graduate study in fields such as international relations,
education, urban education, educational policy and reform, sociology,
anthropology, social work, and public health. Students also work in
nontraditional educational, cultural, or nonprofit institutions; community and
youth development organizations; or fields where education and the arts connect.
